Özet

Purpose. There are now many tests and pathological examinations to detect Helicobacter pylori ( Hp), but most have disadvantages such as being invasive, expensive, or unobtainable for a widespread population. The Hp stool antigen ( SA) test has been advocated as a safe and cost-effective method of diagnosing Hp. Thus, we conducted a prospective study to examine the reliability of the Helicobacter pylori stool antigen (HpSA) test.
